Gothenburg PyPy Sprint II: 7th - 11th December 2005
(NOTE: internal EU-only sprint starts on the 5th!)

The next PyPy sprint is scheduled to be in December 2005 in Gothenborg,
Sweden.  Its main focus is heading towards phase 2, which means JIT

  - Porting C modules from CPython.  (_socket is not finished)
